        Comments about StarTech.com USB 2.0 to IDE or SATA Adapter:

        Who knows if it works as I gave radio shack all the laptop info as to ensure to buy the correct item & I was assured after giving the info that this will work for me - NOPE, does not have the proper connection points, so it would not work for me...
        I had a really tough time returning it (RS did not want to return as it is "electronics" and then refused to send a prepaid label to ship back until I proved it was a RS chat employee who promised this would work) and then it took weeks to get refunded.
        So, the product may work great, who knows but Radioshack certainly does not.
        I went elsewhere & got the correct item & as a bonus, it cost less than half of radioshacks non useful item.

            I was able to retrieve all the data on my old hard drive within minutes. This product is cheaper and easier than paying a computer store service center to retrieve the data. I choose this product in comparison to similar ones because it clearly stated what OSs it would recover and because Star Tech's web site had the most product info available, including support drivers and info downloads.

                My wife's 2-month-old PC tanked with all her data on the hard drive. I was in trouble. The Un*sys tech dispatched by D*ll to fix the t*rd told me about a connector to attach the SATA drive to USB and retrieve the data. I researched online and RS had the best price. Ordered it yesterday and had it shipped to the local RS retail store. It arrived today!! (one day), I received an email and picked it up. Came home, connected it in 2 minutes and retrieved all the data from the SATA drive onto my trusty Macbook Pro.

                Thank you Radio Shack and thank you StarTech.com USB 2.0 to IDE or SATA Adapter

                  Have done both SATA and IDE, no problems at all.
                  Highly compatible with the Four major brands I`ve used it on. May not last years but it`s already paid for itself.

                  This test equipment worked nicely until I hooked up a suspected faulty hard drive and the power supply fried. The hard drive powered up for 2 seconds then no power. It is not a fused transformer.
                  I only used it about 20 times.

                      I used this device to repair the system files on my laptop. I removed the hard drive (it's easier to remove a laptop hard drive than you expect) attached it to another laptop, ran virus scan program, noted files that were removed and replaced those files with files from the same location on the other laptop. When I reinstalled the hard drive everything worked.
